Mitt Kibitzs on Kibbutzs

"It's individuals and their entrepreneurship which have driven America," Romney said. "What America is not a collective where we all work in a Kibbutz or we all in some little entity, instead it's individuals pursuing their dreams and building successful enterprises which employ others and they become inspired as they see what has happened in the place they work and go off and start their own enterprises."
- Mitt Romney, after his recent return from Israel.

Note that in his description of successful enterprises, Romney describes individuals who employ others, not communities that jointly create. Romney's world is one of elites, people who can create and people who are lucky to work in those elites creation. No Kibbutz indeed.
